Pwede na pumalit? Vice President Leni Robredo congratulates new AFP chief of staff
Vice President Leni Robredo was the highest ranking official at the change of command ceremony to welcome new Armed Forces of the Philippines chief of staff Lt. Gen. Noel Clement.
And Robredo couldn’t be happier for the new official, who replaced Gen. Benjamin Madrigal.
In a Facebook post, Robredo congratulated Clement and said she was happy to witness the successful change of command and to personally convey her greetings to the official.
She wished that the country’s military could continue to gain strength so that it could further defend Philippine territory, protect people’s rights, and protect the Filipino nation, she added.
You don’t have to be commander in chief to wish the military well!
“Congratulations sa bagong AFP Chief of Staff Lt. General Noel Clement, pati na kay outgoing Gen. Benjamin Madrigal, Jr. para sa kaniyang serbisyo! Masaya akong masaksihan ang matagumpay na change of command sa AFP upang personal na iparating sa kanila ang ating pagbati.
Sa gitna ng mga hamon ng ating panahon, sana ay patuloy na lumakas ang ating unipormadong hanay upang lalong mapagpagtibay ang kanilang kakayahan na depensahan ang ating mga teritoryo, pangalagaan ang ating mga karapatan, at protektahan ang sambayanang Pilipino,” Robredo posted.
